If you're like me, you want to be sure you have safe and healthy drinking water. Well, with all the pollution that's made its way into our public water sources, you need to install a water filter system. Without one, you're drinking, cooking, and showering in all sorts of toxic contaminants.
There's lots of different water filter systems. You can install them on your kitchen sink, shower, or where water comes into your home so all of your taps have purified water.
First, the technology in a water filter system is very important. The best filters have a carbon block and a sub micron filter. These are very cost effective and will remove 99.9% of all the toxic contaminants in your tap water.
Some systems use distillation or reverse osmosis technology. The problem with these filters is they can't remove many of the synthetic chemicals like prescription drugs and pesticides that are very common in public water.
Distillation and reverse osmosis were initially designed to remove minerals from water so they wouldn't cause any damage to manufacturing equipment. From here, the technology was downsized so it could fit in a house size water filtration system.
Both of these technologies should be avoided. When you remove minerals from your tap water it will not taste very good. Plus, drinking demineralized water is very unhealthy as it can lead to mineral deficiencies in your body. When this happens, you can become susceptible to all sorts of illnesses and disease.
A multistage carbon filter purifier will remove lead, pesticides, fertilizers, gasoline, solvents, prescription drugs, parasites and more. Pretty much anything that shouldn't be in your water will be removed. But, the water will still have the healthy minerals in it after it passes through the multistage carbon filter system.
Shower water is one water source that is overlooked when people decide to buy a water filter system. This is a big mistake. Showers are the number one source of getting toxins in your body due to the heavy pollution in public water.
You see, water is absorbed into your body when you shower. So, all of the toxins in the water get absorbed too. To take care of this, there's a shower head unit you can install that has a multistage carbon filter system. Or, you can install a whole home water filter system so all the taps including your shower are purified.
Make no mistake about it. Installing a water filter system is a smart move. It will be the best investment in your health you'll ever make.
